From education to employment

Multiverse partners with Lime to offer discounted travel to apprentices

Lime, the world’s largest shared electric scooter and bike company, has today announced its partnership with EdTech start-up Multiverse to provide its community of more than 5,000 apprentices in the UK with 50% off all Lime e-bike and scooter rides.

With the average UK worker spending £66.31* a month commuting, the ease and length of the commute is one of the most significant factors influencing whether a student stays in education. The discounted rides from Lime will support Multiverse’s mission to break down barriers to jobs and education, and ensure young people have access to transport that is not only inexpensive, but sustainable and safe. 

The partnership is part of Lime’s ‘Lime Access’ scheme, which was launched in the UK earlier this year. The scheme provides eligible riders – including concession pass holders, key workers, students and job seekers – with unlimited 50% discounts on their Lime e-scooter and e-bike rides, helping them to get where they need to go in a safe, sustainable and affordable way. 

Euan Blair, CEO and founder of Multiverse, said:

“Lime will support our network of thousands of apprentices to access significantly discounted, eco-friendly, and accessible transport options. This will add even further to Multiverse’s rich apprenticeship experience. 

“Our apprentice community benefits from a vast network of fellow apprentices, mentoring opportunities, world-class events – and now thanks to a growing number of partners – unrivalled benefits, professional support, and exclusive opportunities.”

Alan Clarke, Senior Director of Policy for Lime for UKI said:

“Ensuring young people starting out in their careers can access affordable transport is hugely important, and we hope Multiverse’s apprentices enjoy the health and environmental benefits of using our e-bike and scooters , whether cycling  to an important meeting, or scooting to  a training programme. While Multiverse is an organisation dedicated to changing the future of work, here at Lime we want to create a future of transport that is shared, affordable and carbon free. This partnership will help us   get one step closer to achieving both.”

In addition to the discounted rides, Lime will also be providing Multiverse with mentoring and events for its apprentice community on topics including building a global brand and the future of sustainable travel and infrastructure. 

The partnership with Multiverse has also been launched in the United States, and the 50% discount on all Lime e-bike and e-scooter rides will be available to their community of apprentices in New York and San Francisco, with more cities to be announced.
